2016 FIL U19 Men's Lacrosse Championship - Bronze Medal Game - Australia vs Iroquois Nationals
Mon Aug 15, 2016

BRONZE MEDAL GAME: IROQUOIS NATIONALS 20, AUSTRALIA 8 | GAME SHEET: http://filacrosse.com/wp-content/them...
GAME 46: Bronze medal game between Australia and the Iroquois Nationals. 

COQUITLAM, BC – Mitch Laffin led the way for the Iroquois Nationals scoring six goals and adding three assists en route to a 20-8 victory over Australia.

Laffin, Austin Staats (3G, 3A), Tehoka Nanticoke (2G, 1A), Matthew Bennett (2G, 1A), Sekwanee Baker (2G), Doug Jamieson (1G, 1A), Skkylar Thomas (1G, 1A), Devon Buckshot (1G) and Tyson Bomberry (1G) provided the Iroquois scoring. Gordon Purdie Jr (2G, 2A), Mathew Wood (2G, 3A), Jordan Campbell (2G), Brayden Panting (1G, 1A) and Keegan Davies (1G, 1A) provided the Australian offence.

This is the third consecutive bronze medal for the Iroquois at the U19 tournament, with others coming in Finland in 2012 and Coquitlam in 2008. They also won bronze in Australia in 1999.

The Iroquois led 3-2 after the opening quarter before exploding for a 7-2 edge in second to lead by six at the break. Discipline allowed the Crocodiles from down under to creep back into the game – Australia’s powerplay went 4-for-12, with three of extra-man goals coming in the second quarter.

Laffin had his best game of the tournament – but some of that credit needs to be shared as close marking on Staats and Nanticoke opened up the attacker from Onondaga. Jamieson was impressive winning 16 of 26 draws.

The momentum was going in Australia’s favour until Staats and Nanticoke each tallied in the final minute of the half.

Australia finishes in fourth, hitting a goal to move up in the U-19 placings after a fifth-place showing in 2012. Their best-ever placing is second which they achieved in 1992 and 1996.

GAME 38: Championship Semifinal match-up between the United States and Australia. 

COQUITLAM, BC – Seven different players scored multiple goals, led by Alex Roesner with five, as the United States dominated Australia 23-1 to advance to the championship game of the 2016 Federation of International Lacrosse Men’s U19 World Championship. The U.S., the only nation to have won the championship since the event’s inception in 1988, will go for an eighth straight title on Saturday (16-July-2016) at 7 p.m. (Eastern) against Canada.

The U.S. led 7-0 after the first quarter, 12-0 at the half and 15-0 into the third quarter before Australia’s Sean Clarke scored his team’s only goal with 14:43 remaining in the third quarter. Roesner (5g, 1a) and Michael Sowers (2g, 4a) led the U.S. attack with six points each, and Dox Aitken and Mac O’Keefe each had hat tricks. Aitken scored three of Team USA’s first nine goals. Jared Bernhardt (2g, 2a), Austin Sims (1g, 3a) and Ryan Conrad (1g, 2a) each had at least three points for the U.S. as well.

Team USA controlled the faceoffs with Austin Henningsen (7-of-11) and Christian Feliziani (6-of-10) doing the damage. Willie Klan got the start in goal and played three quarters while making two saves and allowing just one goal. Philip Goss played the final quarter and blanked the Aussies while making one save.

COQUITLAM, BC – Israel stuck with Australia for one quarter before the Crocodiles pulled away with a 7-0 run in the second quarter en route to a 21-9 win over Israel.

Australia moves on to face the undefeated Americans on Thursday (14-July-2016) at 4:30 p.m. in the first championship semifinal, while Israel will look to rebound from its first loss of the tournament in a 5th-8th place semifinal game against fellow U-19 tourney newcomer, Ireland, at 3:30 p.m.

England mounted an impressive effort in the second quarter to cut the lead to 8-6 at the half, using five extra-man opportunities to claw back.

GAME 10: Day three featured game between the United States and Australia. 

COQUITLAM, BC – Australia ran into the powerhouse freight train that is the United States. Princeton commit Michael Sowers scored five goals and added two helpers in the 15-4 win over Australia. Sowers looked like Wayne Gretzky from behind the net, commanding the X and distributing passes with precision after drawing double teams. His prowess around the net left fans in the crowd in awe.

Alex Roesner (2G, 2A) teamed up for three of the first four US goals with Sowers. Jared Bernhardt (2G), Mac O’Keefe (1G, 2A), Simon Mathias (1G, 1A), Dox Aitken (1G), and Bryan Costabile (1G). For Australia, Gordon Purdie Jr. led the way with a goal and assist, and Bryan Panting, Matthew Wood and Liam Hood added singles. Luke Dobson made 14 saves in the Australia net in the loss but was the reason the score stayed closer throughout. Willie Klan and Philip Goss split duties in the cage for the U.S.
